Dr Brandon Nelson, A Board Certified Physician & Surgeon, Issaquah’s Best Podiatrist, Discusses Why Lapiplasty Bunion Correction

bunionectomy


Bunion surgery is the most common foot surgery done in the United States.  There are many different techniques to correct a bunion.  Most involve either cutting of a bone or fusion of a bone.  All involve realignment of a joint in order to improve the function and appearance of the foot. 

I have now been practicing medicine and surgery for over 15 years.  I am a podiatrist in Issaquah and have had the opportunity to help 1000’s of patients with bunions.  Bunions can be extremely painful and the majority of people will require them to be fixed at some point. This experience has led me to utilize Lapiplasty on the majority of my patients.


Why the Lapiplasty?

1.      It provides correction at the center of a bunion deformity

2.     It has been proven to have the best long term outcomes

3.     It stabilizes the foot structure

4.     It does an excellent job for large bunions

5.     It has been utilized for over 100 years

I encourage anybody with a bunion to get evaluated by a surgeon that performs a significant amount of bunion corrections annually.  Experience can make a big difference in outcomes and the Lapiplasty is a technically difficult procedure to execute.  If you have a bunion and would like to discuss the Lapiplasty make an appointment with Issaquah’s top Podiatrist at 425-391-8666 or make an online appointment.

Sincerely,
